Team Emancipate is part of a coalition of people and organizations working to register formerly-incarcerated people to vote. A recent court decision restored the franchise to people with felony convictions who are serving probation, parole, or post-release supervision. 

So far, the coalition has reached out to 29,000 of the 55,000 eligible voters via text message. The coalition has also held in-person voter registration and education events in New Bern, Durham, Hickory, and Raleigh

We will continue these efforts together until the deadline to register to vote. 

We will vote for freedom.

The Unlock Our Vote Freedom Summer Tour Coalition partners include: Advance NC, Black Voters Matter, Community Success Initiatives, Emancipate Votes, Forward Justice Action Network, Justice Served NC, NC ACLU, NC Community Bail Fund of Durham, NC Justice Center, NC NAACP, NC Second Chance Alliance, Poor People’s Campaign, Repairers of the Breach, Wash Away Unemployment, You Can Vote.
